The Video Copilot site seems to be down this morning, so I can't check the link that you pointed to.
I'm guessing that the FPS Converter is an animation preset that Andrew made that you were supposed to get from his site in order to follow along with the tutorial.
You can find current instruction for converting movies from one format to another in the "Converting movies" section of After Effects CS4 Help on the Web.
The Video Copilot site does have its own Video Copilot forum, so I bet that you could ask about their tutorial and FPS Converter there. If you do, please post back here with a link to the Video Copilot thread so that everyone can benefit from the answers.
Thanks, Todd, this should be extremely helpful. And yes, I will report back as soon as I check these out.
Just real quick, looking at the first link for "Converting movies" help, I don't think it applies to converting 60i to 24p, so if anyone has any other ideas, please chime in.
I might be missing something here, so I apologize if that is so, but you could try doing the following:
-Import your 60i (29.97 fps field-rendered footage)
-If AE doesn't recognize/separate fields automatically, do so
-Create a new comp using the appropriate preset (i.e. - HDTV 1080 24)
-Drop your interlaced footage into the new comp
Did your footage originally have pulldown applied? Will you be changing the frame size of your footage?
